Damage could be in the millions following a Sunday night fire at a Whitewater disposal facility. Fire crews arrived at John’s Disposal Services to find a sorting and recycling building fully engulfed in flames. Officials say the fire went past five alarms due to the cold conditions and a lack of water at the site.
Whitewater Assistant Fire Chief Joe Uselding said during a Monday afternoon press conference that hotspots around the property, as well as building structure issues, will keep firefighters busy. The cause of the fire is currently undetermined.
